My one real week in London

By Paige ~ September 23, 2016

This is the third post about London, and I haven’t even mentioned the actual place we were living, which had very mixed reviews. The Collective is a dorm-style building made for young professionals. The rooms are minimalist, but provide everything you need. I’ve heard comparisons between the rooms to cruise ship rooms, and while I’ve never…

Birthdays, Belgium & Bottles

By Paige ~ July 27, 2016

After the spontaneous adventure our first weekend, it was time to buckle down and start planning the RY Birthday Duo for Shawn and myself that would take place that Thursday, July 14th. We researched a few different spots and ended up deciding on Archer Street, a venue I’d never been to, but seemed cool online…

The #almostthreepeaks challenge

By Paige ~ July 26, 2016

July was possibly one of the craziest months on Remote Year so far. We were based in London after our initial plan to be in Istanbul was changed early on in the program. For most of us, this wasn’t entirely a welcomed change. After spending four months completely out of our element in Spanish-speaking countries,…

A welcomed homecoming

By Paige ~ July 25, 2016

When I joined Remote Year, I never had any intention of going home during our year adventure. I got to globe trot and roam around the world for a year, why would I want a break from that?! As we came to the end of our fourth month, though, I could feel myself getting a little too wrapped…

The story of nine Remotes, five days, 75 km and a lifetime supply of Snickers

By Paige ~ July 12, 2016

The majority of the tourists who came through Cusco were only there for about a week. This is just enough time to land, stay a night or two, then head off to trek to Machu Picchu, come back, and take off for their next destination. Traditionally, people tend to do the Inca Trail, the original trail…

Our South American Finale

By Paige ~ July 10, 2016

It’s so interesting to me how every month is such a different experience for each person. It just goes to show how the experiences, rather than just the city itself, are truly what form a person’s relationship with a city. For me, Cusco was probably my favorite month in South America. Maybe it’s because we…

Adventure Month; aka La Paz

By Paige ~ July 7, 2016

After Buenos Aires, our heads still spinning from everything going on, our Cousteau tribe packed up and shipped off to La Paz, Bolivia. Let me tell you, it was a shock to just about everyone’s systems. I really had no idea what to expect from La Paz. All I had heard was that I wouldn’t…

The Whirlwind; aka Buenos Aires

By Paige ~ July 1, 2016

So, where have I been since my last update on some date, a long, long time ago? After our first month in Cordoba, we moved onto the cloudy but wonderful city of Buenos Aires for the month of April, and then onto the highest capital in the world, La Paz, for the month of May.…
